     1/4 t. cinnamon
     1 T. sugar or 2 t honey
     1 scant t quick-rising yeast
     1/4 - 1/2 t salt (optional)
     1/3 to 1/2 C hot tap water
     1/3 C raisins

     4 medium apples
     Juice of 1/2 lemon
     Pinch white pepper
     Pinch cloves
     Pinch cardamon
     Pinch nutmeg
     Pinch ground ginger or 1/2 t. grated ginger root
     1 t. vanilla extract
     1/4 to 1/3 C. sugar or honey
     1/4 to 1/2 C. brown sugar or 2 T blackstrap molasses
     1 t. cornstarch (2 t if using honey instead of sugar)

     2 T. apricot jam or preserves
     1 t. water

     Dough: Process quartered apple in food processor for about 20 sec;
     transfer to a separate bowl.

     Add 2 C. flour, cinnamion, sugar or honey, yeast and salt if desired
     to food processor; process 5 seconds. Add processed apple; process for
     additional 5 seconds. With processor running, gradually add 1/3 C. hot
     water through feeder tube. Stop machine and let dough rest about 20
     seconds. Continue processing and adding water gradually through feeder
     tube until dough forms a soft ball and sides of bowl are clean. Pulse
     2 or 3 mores times.

     Sprinkle raisins and 1 T flour onto clean surface. Turn dough onto
     surface and knead for about 1 minute to incorporate raisins. Add flour
     if dough is very sticky.

     Lightly flour inside of plastic bag. Plac dough in bag, seal and let
     rest for 15 to 20 minutes in a warm, dark place.

     Roll dough into a circle 12 to 14 inches in diameter. Lay in oiled
     (ack! use spray or parchment paper!) skillet or a baking dish. Cover
     with a kitchen towel and set aside in a warm place while you prepare
     filling. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

     Filling: Core and slice apples paper thin. Sprinkle lemon juice over
     apple slices. Add remaining filling ingredients and mix well.

     Spoon filling into dough. Bake for 20 minutes, then rotate pan 180
     degrees.  Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees, and bake for an
     additional 20 minutes, or until apples are browned. Cool in pan for 5
     minutes. Remove from pan and cool thoroughly on wire rack.

     Glaze: In a small saucepan, melt jam or preserves. Add water, and
     bring to a boil, stirring vigorously. Brush glaze over apples and
     serve. Serves 8 to 10.

     The recipe also suggests that you prepare it a day in advance to give
     flavors a chance to meld.
